Fagan adds a new dimension to the failure of civilizations outside value reversals and psychological self destruction posed by Brooks Adams Spengler or de Tocueville Data from a variety of sources not available until recently correlates with history the impacts of climate on civilization Fagan opens with a curious personal experience—his small sailboat on treacherous Spanish waters passed by cargo laden hulks seemingly oblivious to nature’s furry This introduction becomes a useful analogy for the “scale of our vulnerability” As we complicate society and “tame” nature we also massively increase the calamity of nature’s accumulating response The Sumerian city of Ur becomes our first tour and what a tour it is Fagan hits his stride crystallizing his point when Sumerians are his centerpiece Conceived around 6000 BCE as a collection of villages already employing canals for irrigation the region suffered a monsoon shift driving Sumerians to increase organization through innovation Hence invention of the city by 3100 BCE Volcanic induced climate shift eventually ran the Sumerian ship aground as similar shifts did for others not only starving the populous but dissolving faith in their gods kings and way of life But Fagan writes “The intricate euation between urban population readily accessible food supplies and the economic political and social flexibility sufficient to roll with the climatic punches has been irrevocably altered If Ur was a small trading ship industrial civilization is a supertanker” And supertankers split in half now and then The ability to simply return to farming or hunter gathering is now lost given that so many of us occupy the landscape competing with everyone else under the same conditions If some of us once comforted ourselves with notions of shinning up the hunting rifle returning to nature in our tent during such a calamity forget it When societies stretched to the limit falter under climate change stress in the psyche comes to the fore in ways never imagined even or especially in abrasive group oriented societies like ours Tribal suspicions lay waiting for such opportunities Fagan notes the same human response by cultures separated by thousands of years different continents “meaning and value” systems “In both the Old World and the New” he writes “human societies reacted to climate traumas with social and political changes that are startling in their similarities” Universal human truths after all Take that postmodernists “But if we’ve become a supertanker among human societies it’s an oddly inattentive one” writes Fagan “Only a tiny fraction of people on board are engaged with tending the engines The rest are buying and selling goods among themselves and entertaining each other Those on the bridge have no charts or weather forecasts and cannot even agree that they are needed; indeed the most powerful among us subscribe to a theory that says storms don’t exist And no one dares to whisper in the helmsman’s ear that he might consider turning the wheel” So ends a well written at times spellbinding account of our past and warning to our present ignored at our peril

A sweeping history of the post Ice Age migrations of humans over the last 18000 years This is a great book and it answers so many uestions about why people ended up in the pockets of the world in which they did as well as why and how agriculture developed where it did The one problem I have with it is that Fagan has this apprehension about what he calls environmental determinism ie the idea that it could be said that the environment is the reason that certain things happened say the development of agriculture He calls this misguided and a viewpoint that in hyperbolic terms I assume nearly destroyed this type of research Then he goes on to write at least two books that show how much climate determined exactly these types of things I think this is probably representative of his generation 1930s than a real issue One minor problem with his book is his view that there was some sort of worldwide post Ice Age disaster that caused the extinction of large mammals He goes out of his way to discuss how it could not have been the subseuent warm weather population explosion of humans and the invention of new technologies that drove the extinctions This seems to be the same type of thinking that leads to the idea that climate is too large to be seriously affected by humans and seems increasingly a minority viewpoint

Mark Twain supposedly once said Everybody talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it I guess as a commentary on how helpless human beings are over the vast power of nature Well these days humanity is certainly doing something about the weather in the form of dumping tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere each year but it's under appreciated how vulnerable we still are to unusual weather events how dependent on complex climate patterns modern civilization is and also how fortunate we are to have come of age as a species in an unusually long spell of relatively moderate climate across the whole planet Indeed without particular confluences of abrupt climate diseuilibria we'd probably still be hanging around Olduvai GorgeAccording to Fagan primitive peoples were doing just fine in their native ecosystems for tens of millennia wandering around their veldts and steppes chasing the seasons and the prey animals until a series of climate shifts allowed them to expand beyond their traditional homelands and colonize the whole planet He documents a whole series of climate pumps in the first stage a group of humans has settled a particular area and is hemmed in by resources or inhospitable conditions Then a shift allows that group to expand a little bit farther either to take advantage of new opportunities or under pressure from another group trying to compete for its homeland Then the climate shifts again and since the group can't stay where it is and it can't go back to where it was it's forced out into new lands After a few cycles of expand explore consolidate and expand again groups of hunter gatherers had been pushed to every corner of the globe sometimes carrying old technology with them but often being forced to innovate and adapt to new environments and food sources along the way At some point in recent history an unusually long period of relative calm began and I say relative only because Fagan recounts numerous examples of the often catastrophic effects that even single year events like late rains or exceptionally cold winters had on medieval and classical civilization and humanity was able to build the foundations of intensive agriculture and far flung trade networks that all modern societies have inherited There's a consistent theme of the fragility of civilization as groups coalesce into tribes then into states then into empires only to disintegrate after rainfall patterns shiftedIt concurs with a good deal of Jared Diamond's Collapse albeit from strictly climate based perspective rather than resource based I always enjoy these broad high level popular science history books because they give you new ways to look at the world For example in not too long the American Southwest which for many many years was a nearly waterless desert will have to make tough choices about what kind of lifestyle they can afford in the face of what is guaranteed to be an astronomical increase in the price of water Up until now the US has been rich enough and wet enough to have all the golf courses and hilariously non native crops that it wanted wherever it wanted but very slight shifts in climate could render the lifestyles of tens of millions of people not just unsustainable but unsupportable period The abandoned dwellings in Chaco Canyon make for excellent tourist attractions but it doesn't take a huge stretch of the imagination to wonder if Phoenix could end up the same way and what the implications would be for the rest of the country Closer to home the landscape of my
